Intel® Core™ Ultra Processors

The MSC HCA-MLH COM-HPC Client module features the Intel® Core™ Ultra processor, providing developers with a powerful workhorse to boost their target applications. The module is ideal for challenging tasks in robotics, medical, public safety, and gaming that require uncompromising performance. The architecture scales up to sixteen cores and twenty-two threads at 28/15W thermal design power (TDP). Together with the integrated AI accelerator (NPU) and up to 128 GPUs, the processor greatly supports AI projects and compute intense duties.

For highest data throughput the module enables fast DDR5-5600 memory technology. Up to two SO-DIMMs can be installed for a total memory capacity from eight to ninety-six GB. Up to sixteen PCIe Gen 4 lanes and an eight lane PEG port (PCIe Gen 5) allow for accessing external accelerators, storage, and I/O at high throughput. Two Ethernet interfaces provide up to 2.5GbE bandwidth each based on the Intel i226 network controller.

System investments are well protected through long-term availability of the module, designed, and manufactured by Avnet Embedded. In addition, the COM Express standard enables performance scaling and migrating applications to future technology upgrades when they become available.
